Dear Brothers and Coworkers
October is upon us and it looks as though cooler weather will be coming soon. As most of you know, the First Annual Colonial Beach Bike Festival is right around the corner. 9 through 12 October to be exact. We have opened the Moose Lodge grounds for rough style camping. Many volunteers have supported the Lodge in preparing the grounds for the bikers that will be sleeping here through the weekend. I would personally like to thank everyone who donated their time, energy, and efforts in helping the Lodge prepare for this event. Not one of us knows how many and what to expect! Congratulations to Wendy Huffman for winning the Queen of Hearts drawing. It was rather amazing that our game went down to the last card on the board! Also, I would like to thank Jimmy Boaz, Charlie Hottle, Vance Matters, Andrew Middleton, R.C., and Bobby McKinney for the men’s bathroom renovation project. They accomplished in two days what we have been sitting around talking about doing for two Months. We are trying to update our Lodge Home and make it more presentable for all of our members. Remember TEAM stands for “Together Everyone Accomplishes More”. MLC has stopped the first Friday of the Month fish fry dinners. If anyone has any ideas, please contact Bonnie or myself at the Lodge. Right now, we don’t have any scheduled dinners for October, so call the Lodge for specials and Friday night dinner plans. Don’t forget the Children’s Halloween Party on 25 October beginning at 1 PM. The Adult Halloween Party is scheduled for 31 October with finger foods. The “Koolerators” will be playing from 8 until midnight in the Social Quarters. We are looking for Team Members to help decorate the Social Quarters for this event.
October is a busy Month for us here at the Lodge……. Please come out and support your Lodge Home!
Fraternally, Joe Eller Administrator
